Abstract Forest canopy height is an important indicator of forest biomass, species diversity, and other ecosystem functions; however, the climatic determinants that underlie its global patterns have not been fully explored. Results Biogeographic patterns of forest canopy height As shown in the spatial and latitudinal patterns of global forest canopy heights Fig. Figure 1 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint.
The inset graph shows the frequency distribution of the forest canopy heights. Relationships between climatic indices and canopy heights Forest canopy heights were poorly fitted by temperature indices using either of the fitting techniques, with R 2 that ranged from 0. Figure 2 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint. Discussion This study evaluated the global patterns and determinants of forest canopy height.

In Stock. Botany for Gardeners. Desired skills include experience in management of large digital datasets, measuring and processing plant ecophysiology data, and familiarity with some ecophysiology instrumentation e. Application deadline is May 15th , but review will start immediately.
The position entails ecosystem modeling of global agricultural lands to predict the impact of management on soil C pools and greenhouse gas emissions. The position responsibilities include advancing an existing global modeling framework; integrating the latest datasets on land use, management practices, soils and climate; and using the framework to simulate historical patterns and predict future emissions based on management scenarios.
The position will require collaboration with other team members on the project, communication with project partners, and preparation of peer-review manuscripts. Ogle colostate. Ecosystem Ecology and Remote Sensing: We are seeking a motivated and independent postdoc to advance the state of the art in remote sensing and geospatial data integration in the field of ecosystem ecology.
The successful candidate will work with the Landsat and Sentinel archive in conjunction with very high resolution drone acquired imagery to investigate how vegetation and topography govern microclimatic variability in post-wildfire landscapes. The objective of this project is to quantify influences on post-disturbance microclimatic variability and its effects on tree seedling survival. We work collaboratively to tackle a range of question related to global change and forest ecosystems.
We are seeking an individual with a quantitative ecosystem ecology or remote sensing background that is fluent in R or Python, has extensive geospatial analytic experience using any GIS, and experience with model-data integration. The position is initially for one year with the potential for extension. Preferred start date is fall To apply please send your CV, two-page statement of research interests, and list of three references to Matthew Hurteau mhurteau unm.
We will begin reviewing applications 23 September. As part of an interdisciplinary multi-institutional team including USDA Forest Service and other University scientists , the associate will help estimate the three-dimensional decay dynamics of woody debris created by a hurricane. The position includes travel, fieldwork, and undergraduate mentoring.
Researchers with experience in statistical modeling, remote sensing, forestry, or ecosystem ecology are encouraged to apply. The appointment is for one year initially, with an opportunity for a second year based on successful performance. The starting date is flexible; earlier start dates are preferred. To apply, submit a CV, including peer-reviewed publications, and cover letter that includes summary of relevant research experience and interests and brief description of mentoring activities, to jvogel ufl.
Please feel to contact Jason Vogel jvogel ufl. Ecological Forecasting: A new position for a postdoctoral research associate will be available in the Carey and Thomas Labs, a vibrant, highly collaborative, interdisciplinary research team working on ecological forecasting at Virginia Tech. We envision the postdoc will leverage the new forecasting capacity emerging from our Smart Reservoir project SmartReservoir. Research activities will include: developing innovative educational materials and R Shiny apps that provide instruction on the foundations of ecological forecasting; coordinating the pedagogical assessment of teaching modules; generating aquatic and terrestrial forecasts with NEON National Ecological Observatory Network and GLEON Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network data; leading training sessions on the teaching modules; communicating forecasts and research findings via peer-reviewed publications; and collaborating with instructors and researchers at other universities.
The position will be for two years, contingent upon a successful one-year review. Required Qualifications: -We are seeking a Ph.
How to apply: Candidates should submit to the jobs. Apply to posting This project will combine data-synthesis, experimental manipulation and modelling to deliver new process-orientated insight into the response of Eucalyptus trees to projected changes in the frequency, magnitude and duration of future droughts across Australia.
These developments will include the representation of plant hydraulics and testing novel optimality-based hypotheses related to leaf shedding, leaf cooling and rooting depth. The project offers the candidate the opportunity to work closely with researchers with expertise bridging ecophysiology, model-data fusion, land and climate modelling. This is a month position with an expected start date after August Programming experience is essential and languages such as Fortran90, C, Python and R are common in our field.
To apply for the position please visit the full job ad Questions should be directed to Martin De Kauwe m. Applications close: August 10th, This is a unique opportunity to contribute to develop the candidates own research interests and contribute to a new project. Candidates with an interest in contributing to inclusivity and diversity in quantitative ecology are especially encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will develop an initial database of past population viability predictions that can be compared to current observations. Viability predictions of plants and animal populations have been made for decades for both management and conservation purposes; however, these predictions are rarely revisited to assess their accuracy. We will use the database to provide a critical assessment of the suitability of the models and datasets used to make predictions.
Possible research questions include determining whether recent advances in statistical techniques have improved predictions and making recommendations for future practice. The candidate will have the option of being a co-PI on proposals developed from this initial work. Preferred skills also include excellent writing and organizational skills and database management.
